I didn't know this was a trend! I also have several vietnamese relatives who faked their age except their logic was to use an older age so they can claim social security benefits earlier.

They usually don't even use the same month and day for their fake DOB. This is because everyone in the family only celebrate their chinese/lunar calendar birthday instead (which is already on a different western date each year).

Stop narcing on them on the internet, friend.

The migrants we have in Europe routinely claim they are underage. Most of them are easily 10 years older, if not with white beard. Both themselves and the immigration agents participate because they are so keen on helping them.
